Hello everyone, We are Pants Theatre Production, a Hong Kong theatre production company. On September 15-24, we will bring back our production “Gweilo”, a mesmerizing bilingual solo performance adapted from British writer Marin Booth’s bestselling memoir, for a 3rd-run at Sheung Wan Civic Centre Theatre.
Renowned novelist Martin Booth followed his father to settle in British colony Hong Kong in the 50s. His childhood coincided with how this city grew to be one of the most prosperous metropolises in the world. He has a direct experience of East meeting West. He passed away shortly after he finish Gweilo - a memoir of his unforgettable relationship with this Eastern gem.
In 2016, Artistic director Wu Hoi Fai, together with the French-Finnish actor Micah Sandt, adapted this memoir into a box office hit - a bilingual solo performance. In 2018, its revival also met with rave response. We are happy to announce that Gweilo is back AGAIN with the original cast! The production will be performed in English and Cantonese with Chinese and English surtitles. We welcome all of you here to come and enjoy the show, and explore 1950s Hong Kong with us.
